1 VIDEOGAMES A study says playing ultrafast videogames may actually make you smarter. If you're gonna get fatter and pastier anyway, kids, it sure beats math and science.

2 2 FAST 2 FURIOUS Finally, an entire movie about people who have to go through life without spelling the word too.

3 BARBRA STREISAND She's suing a photographer for publishing online detailed aerial shots of her beach home. She doesn't want people to know she keeps a messy roof.

4 CARNIE WILSON After dropping 150 pounds, she's posing for Playboy. Guess she just likes getting staples in her stomach.

5 PAUL MCCARTNEY He and wife Heather Mills are going to have a baby. By the time the kid gets out of diapers, Sir Paul will be wearing them.

6 RICHARD CHAMBERLAIN By confirming he's gay, the handsome 68-year-old actor has shocked Americans -- one guy in Kansas and some old lady in Idaho.

7 HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX The great thing about the new 896-page book is that it gets children interested in reading and weight lifting.

8 RICKY MARTIN He says he got tired of all the glamour, the limos, and the private jets. Show a little grit, man. If all the other big overpaid stars can put up with it, you can.

9 HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON Barbara Walters will be the first to interview the senator about her memoirs. Or, as they were called in Washington, depositions.

10 SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVALS Think $60 tickets and $4.50 bottles of water are bad? Just wait till you find out there's one Porta Potti for every 8,000 people.
